Description Bill Nottingham 2005-04-13 15:45:07 UTC
$ rpm -ql | grep xmlsec

We have a libxmlsec1 package in the distro - is there a reason it can't
be used?

There are a pile of patches which Sun added about which I've hassled sun and our
libxmlsec maintainer (DV) about upstreaming into the mainstream libxmlsec for
months and months. There's been grindingly slow progress, and it's the
mainstream libxmlsec is still not a drop in replacement. 

More reachable is replacing the db3 libraries with our system db4 if and got done.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-13 16:28:27 UTC
OK, I saw:

 The new XML Security Library 1.2.8 release merges changes to
xmlsec-mscrypto and xmlsec-nss into main xmlsec source tree.

but we don't package 1.2.8 yet.

(The reason this came up is that in anaconda, xmlsec1-openssl was pulling in
OO.o-core for its dependency; while it probably shouldn't do
that, I was curious if we could make the problem go away in this way.)

For the record, as of 1.2.8 there are four methods not merged into xmlsec1
